    This is a test, I just want to see what I did wrong before going on to the next one...

    This is from 6/JG2 as far as I know.

    Clave, are the earth/green tones authentic? I trust your judgement, but they look too "british". I love the wild sau winter camo.

    Erich should be able to advise you on the paint schemes but it's rare he finds himself in here..........

    Heh, the D9 is kinda wacky-looking imo, I don't think it will make the list for a while...

    Clave, ever thought of doing ships? Your medium would probably look great with WWII battleships and destroyers.

    I debated that, but kinda like 'sand' better than 'mud' :D

    But the truth is, I just don't know - the references I have seen vary from almost yellow, to darkish brown and everything in between, so.. hmm... still mulling it over... :|

    I'm interested in modelling a 1/72 A-4 9.jg54. I know they weren't in Russia for very long, but I'd like to do it with a code no. and yellow or white "squiggle". Does anyone have any evidence of such markings? Maybe an A-3? David E. Wells.
